Lake Roosevelt players display refreshing attitude

I am Roger Odorizzi, a basketball fan on the bleachers. I am also a bus driver for the Manson school district and I hope this qualifies my following observations, as I go to many different schools during the school year and see many different town and team attitudes.

I was very pleased with Lake Roosevelt and how they conducted themselves at last evening’s game. I sat in the entry way before the game and visited with a few of your fans as they entered the gym. With a casual, “How are the roads?” “Was there much fog on your trip over?” and such. I am glad to see another small community thriving with friendliness such as ours.

I also observed your players showing camaraderie with ours too!

Two players collided just in front of me and both took a pretty good thumping in the fall, and the first words that came out of your player’s mouth as he looked at our player was “Are you OK?”! This is great, and I felt you should know, you must be doing something right with the kids. Throughout the game, I saw other gestures from your team that were refreshing, reassuring and just plain great.

Although we lost, I would like to state the whole experience as refreshing and I appreciate it from your team and community.
